Accurate street cabinet information

Does anyone know if there is a way of finding out exactly when a particular street cabinet is planned to be upgraded to fibre?

Re: Accurate street cabinet information

no

 

even openreach don't know exactly when a street cabinet will be upgraded as problems can occur all the time - lack of a nearby power supply or blocked ducts in the road just as an example

Re: Accurate street cabinet information

Thanks for that.

However, there is a difference between planned work and actual dates.  What I want to know is if my cabinet is likely to be upgraded, with a rough timescale, or whether there is no intention of doing it in the foreseeable future.

Additionally I was told by BT that I could email Openreach for information on their website.  However, I can't find a way of doing this.  If anyone could provide a link, this would be most helpful.

Re: Accurate street cabinet information

This site has cabinet specific information http://fttc-check.alc.im/. Hopefully yours will show a deployment date.

 

Also, according to this post https://community.bt.com/t5/BT-Infinity-Speed-Connection/Changes-imminent-to-the-Openreach-s-Superfa... the Openreach site will be changing shortly to show cabinet level results if your exchange is already enabled. Worth keeping an eye on.

Re: Accurate street cabinet information

Thanks for this. I haven't seen this site before.  Unfortunately it seems to confirm that my cabinet isn't going to be upgraded!

Re: Accurate street cabinet information

What is the status for your cabinet?

 

I can't get FTTC yet despite my exchange being enabled, through that site my Status is 'Being deployed as part of BDUK' with no Deployment Date. So I guess it will be getting done, just not sure when.

 

Hopefully when Openreach update their site it may tell me.

Re: Accurate street cabinet information

Unfortunately I think it's a basket case:  "Not being deployed as part of BT's 66% Commercial Plan"  even though my exchange has also recently been upgraded.  I find this strange as it's a normal residential area with plenty of houses, and less than a mile from the exchange.
